You are reading page 16 of President-elect Trump. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Please see my response to Timothy.

Obama did not spend nearly two years of a campaign explicitly promising to restrict rights of people of one religion, mocking the disabled, denigrating women, creating a culture of lugenpresse, inciting violence among supporters ("Beat the crap out of 'im, would ya?"), and stoking xenophobia by creating the Mexican = rapist/criminal association in the minds of far too many.

There is no normalization of this.

If you are straight, white, and Christian, then I am sure you will get through the next four years just fine. Please don't tell me that I am not seeing what has been explicitly placed in my face for the last two years. To pat us on the head and promise that everything will be ok is patronizing at best. It has already not been ok for many thousands of people since Election Day.

Eloquent.

Thank you.

I can't take anything a Catholic organization says seriously after watching Spotlight.....

And after being raised Catholic and getting sex-ed in elementary school from a bunch of nuns telling me if I touched myself I would burn in hell.

I wonder if the priests that touched the children's genitals will also burn in that particular hell.

When I was in high school our nuns were from Germany. They were grumpy authoritarian women who hit the back of kids hands with a yard stick. My non Catholic Daddy told us they had risked their loves hiding Jewish women in their convent.

The priest assigned to chaperone the teen club was in his thirties. He was an American. He had been engaged to be married when in college. She died in a car accident. A couple years later he discovered he had a vocation.

He told me in confession masturbation in private was not a sin. I checked with two girlfriends. They asked him in confession and he told them it was acceptable too. That was 1961.

"In the end the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality was tacitly denied by their philosophy."

--from "Nineteen Eighty Four" by George Orwell

Welcome to the Trump era of alternate facts, a post truth dystopia where you mustn't believe what you just experienced yourself, you must believe as told to believe.

I see more marches in our future.

His press secretary and his counselor are really doing him a disservice. I predict he's going to fire them eventually. They are both idiots.

Please elaborate.
Maybe because of "Alternative facts"

Per President Trump Spokesperson Sean Spicer, "There are times when you [media] publish a correction"

Why no correction for the error below?

I don't understand how Spicer and Conway spreading the alt facts of their boss is doing their boss a disservice.

Seems like they are doing what he expects of them.

Looking at his history of firing her predecessors, I think it's just a matter of time before the two of them hang themselves.

I wouldn't argue that he won't die them when they struggle with his communication plan. I just was confused by the thought that they are somehow doing Trump a disservice.
